My buddies and I used to leave guns in our trucks in the high school parking lot, so we could leave straight from there to go hunt. This was very common, and the school didn't give a rat's *** about it. Nobody ever shot up the school either.

We used to get off the bus and run home, change and grab our guns. We'd head back to the bus stop and wait for the elementary kids to get dropped off. We'd get back on the bus with our guns, while there were still little kids on the bus! She'd take us to the edge of town and drop us off. Those were the good ol' days for sure!

I always love looking at that picture . I think it’s awesome. I would of thought I had the coolest bus driver.
It’s very sad but in today’s Snow Flake world there would be outrage The bus driver would be looking for a new job after he got out of jail. And he would have to pay for all the students mental health issues. Then the school district would be sued as well. It’s just sad and scary the world we live in today.

I'm genuinely curious what of that time period people would want back?

There seemed to be a bit more mental toughness among people "back in the day", which is good or at the least we were better at hiding the problems we had or pretending like they don't exist but other than that by every objective measure (economically, violent crime and a bajillion other social issues) of society we are way better off now than we were back then.

I do understand the nostalgia of only remembering the cool aspects of when you were a kid, I obviously don't remember all the crappy aspects of the 80s so it would be easy to think of them as the "good days" but the world is, aside from a few aspects, a much better place for more people than it was at any other time.

I guess I was never big on nostalgia because I've already recognized it for the illusion that it is...

Those "few aspects" is a massive minimalization. Huge. I'll respectfully disagree. Maybe I'm not woke enough.

Things really were better then. We didn't fear each other like we do today. We trusted each other. We had less money but we didn't want as much as we seem to now. We were content with a decent job and a happy family. We were happy with the six point buck and didn't need the 140". I'm afraid for the path we are going down and how we are setting our kids up for failure. Life is real, not a facebook post. I think more people are worried about other peoples perception than the real thing. I hope I am wrong, but fear I am not.

I think you have some very valid points, especially on the trust issues and our culture of always wanting more and keeping up with the Joneses (which actually started WAY before any of us were born).

It's also very easy to look at the past with rose colored glasses, for example I grew up in the 1988 "Murder Capital of America" (currently the 4th poorest city in the nation, ranked the worst small town to live in in the nation last year) during the biggest violent crime spike the country has seen since the low point in the 1960s.

I remember that time as being "the good ol days" when when life was just plain peachy, everyone got along better and everything was better, except for The Devil being EVERYWHERE and trying to kidnap and everyone's babies of course..... It feels that way and that's how I remember it but I know it just ain't true.

We do have some pretty big cultural problems today but objectively, we are way better off now than at any other time and despite the problems it's easier than it has ever been to ignore them, go your own way and do your own thing.

And as far as hunting goes, we are absolutely living in the good ol days right now! Private land permissions issues aside, It's never been more accessible to go out and have the hunt of your dreams, just don't drive around town with a deer on your car.. it's really bad for the meat.

About 10 years ago or so, I had blood in the bed of my truck from the deer I had taken the weekend before. A colleague walking by my truck had seen it and reported it to my boss. I was asked to wash it out before returning to work the next day.

I guess my answer would be the 70s because thatís what I can relate to.

Economically I donít know if anyone is ďbetter offĒ today than back then. Itís a gradual progression. As income increases, so does cost of living and goods; or maybe vice-versa.

I just remember everyone getting along. I donít remember politics ruling the day or consuming everyone. Everyone seemed to just get along better. Neighbors actually talked and watched out for each other. Kids freely played pretty much wherever they wanted to without worry for the most part.

Of course as you stated we tend to remember the good more than the bad but I can say I long for the days I mentioned above. I feel like my kids missed out on so much that I feel made my childhood awesome.

I grew up in the 50's and 60's. We did not lock car doors or our house. When I was younger (age 8 to 12) I could ride my bike across town to my Grandmas house which was a couple of miles. My parents nor I ever once worried about me getting hurt or kidnapped. We knew every neighbor on our block. Could carry a rifle in the back window of your truck with no problem or concern. Everybody was clear on what their sex was in order to go into the correct bathroom and did not have to worry about someone from the opposite sex using their bathroom.

I could go on and on - what I DO KNOW is this is not my "perception" - it was a reality.

Sure life now days is easier - order your food online and have someone bring it to your door. Push a button and your truck tail gate opens on its own. But IMO that does not make our lives necessarily better

Was that pre-castle doctrine? The local police advised me that since the vehicle is an extension of your home it is perfectly legal to have a pistol in your vehicle (in a gun-free zone) as long as itís out of sight. Or maybe the fact that it was viewable without entering was the issue?

It was in his trunk not visible but until this year you weren't allowed to have any firearms in your car or person on public school property that got fixed 09/01/19

Back in 71 our bus driver named Buck hit a doe with the bus. Stopped and I threw her in the back of the bus. Needless to say I was called into the office the next day and told don't do that again and that was it.

I graduated in 97 and during any hunting season I had my shotgun with an i in my unlocked truck. Never an issue. Usually waders in the back... or in my boat still attached.

Teachers would ask to borrow our knives back then..

My drivers ed teacher in high school would have us drive to the river and check his trot lines with him. We typically jump shot ducks on the way home. The principal was worried that someone would break into the trucks, so he had us store the cased shotguns in his office. We were excused from a week of school for corn harvest as well. None of these would be a possibility today.
